All-time favourite movies?

What I like about the film is that both interpretations actually work. On one hand, it’s a universal depiction of an existential crisis. We do not see him doing anything other than examining and collecting insects before he is captured so I think he comes to the conclusion that the life outside the pit isn’t really worth it. On the other hand, the film is also seen as critique of the Japanese society - how it drives men to work like slaves. Seeing the end result as “brainwashing” supports that view. On top of that I love how the camera manages to capture the protagonist’s state of mind so vividly.

It’s all gone Pete Tong, a hidden Gem. It’s about a DJ superstar, living on Ibiza, who goes completely deaf. Great movie.

I’ll make it quick in 10 numbers, although I’ll cheat a bit.
Back to the Future Trilogy - my all-time favourite, watched it like millions of times, perfect blend of comedy, sci-fi and adventure.
The Dollars Trilogy - the best the Western genre can suggest, along with Once Upon a Time. Leone + Morricone = win.
The Sequels Trilogy - made it up, but it’s a perfect way to describe Mad Max 2, Terminator 2 and Aliens, three sequels to three cult sci-fi/action films of the 1980s that surpass the originals in every way.
City of Lost Children - love at first sight, extremely beautiful and stylish tale, unlike the horrible game.
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels - this and Snatch are the reasons why I will always put Guy Ritchie ahead of Tarantino.
Dersu Uzala - By no means I’m a fan of Akira Kurosawa, but Dersu just gets under your skin, a stunning film about man and nature.
They Live! - I love early John Carpenter, and this is probably his most angry satire on modern society, even without Kurt Russel.
Brazil - and this is Terry Gilliam’s take on similar subject. Better than the “1984” film (and book, to be fair).
Steamboat Bill, Jr. - Buster Keaton is the king of physical comedy to me, and this is the best demonstration of his skills.
Gattaca - a very underrated and emotionally charged gem about future, eugenics and the will to win.
PC means personal computer

Ok in no particular order here are some of my all time favourite movies:

- Transformers series
- District 9

Did anyone watch a small indie movie called The Endless, I cant get enough of it, i watched it 4 times in two years and i am always enjoying it.. if ye love The Call of Cthulhu, you must watch this twisted idea of adaptation.

Great! I look forward to checking out The Endless.
So even though I’m not huge into cinema, I have some weird picks for favorite movies, understand, I used to work at a movie store so I’ve seen some junk ^_^
In no particular order:
1. 28 Days Later (still scares me and I watch it once a year)
2. May (hilarious and unsettling the 2006 movie)
3. A Scanner Darkly (I argue the best or at least my fav. of the philip k dick novels adapted for film)
4. Aladdin (I want to be a prince!
5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (So turns out jim carey is amazing when he’s not goofy too)
6. The Matrix (mostly nostalgia. I was probably 8 when I watched it, and my little kid mind was blown at the philosophical theological ideas and inspirations. But good cinematography and fun writing)
6. Ginger snaps series
7. Cube series
Can we be friends please?
